The museum around the minareth is pretty small but you'd better visit it. It's not so crowded and there is no entrance fee.

Very beautiful masjid and surrounded by old Istanbul and beautiful views.
We offerred Juma prayers. The surmon on Namaz by Imam sahib was felt in my heart. The minar and the inside structure gave us spirit and we praised the architecture work in and outside the mosque.
